Virgin/Blue Yonder email problems?

Heads up that we're seeing problems with email on our outbound mail platform that's destined for BlueYonder/Virgin's mail servers. It's queueing up because their servers are returning [tt]421 Too many concurrent SMTP connections[/tt] errors.
Seems that this is happening no matter where I try to connect from (both on and off our network):
C:\Users\Bobby>telnet smtpin.blueyonder.virginmedia.com 25
421 know-smtpfemta-13.server.virginmedia.net: Too many concurrent SMTP connections;
please try again later

Connection to host lost.

Can't see anything here, but thought I'd pay mention to it nonetheless in case anybody starts seeing problems sending to Virgin/BlueYonder customers.
Edit: Have dropped Virgin a tweet too.
